WHO is excited for CONsole Room 2023? We’re just one final day away!
In our last broad update before the convention, review our guest list (with one final addition!), check out our guide to the convention, see reminders on important information about hotel parking, and more.
We’re so glad you’ve chosen to spend the weekend with us, whether in person or virtually. If you haven’t registered yet, you can still join us in person (visit Registration when you arrive) or virtually by registering for a CYBERMITE or CYBERMAN virtual registration.
Power up your sonic screwdriver, strap on your vortex manipulator, and get ready to have a blast online or in person this weekend. Allons-y!
PLEASE WELCOME NEW GUESTS TO CONSOLE ROOM 2023!
We’re excited to announce our final Guest of Honour, Caitlin Blackwood! Caitlin is most well-known in the Doctor Who universe for playing Young Amy Pond.
You can learn more about our current guest list on our GUESTS page.
AUTOGRAPHS AND PHOTOGRAPHS NOW AVAILABLE
Autographs and Photographs are now available for purchase for in person and virtual attendees!

For those of you used to the hotel we’ve been using for the past decade – and those joining us for the first time! – please take the time to review the information below for updates on hotel operating procedures.
Parking at the Hotel
Parking in the hotel parking lot is FREE for all CONsole Room attendees. In 2023 the hotel is implementing a new paid parking system – you will likely see signs throughout the parking lot with QR codes guiding you to a parking website – but parking is FREE for CONsole Room attendees. In order to access the free parking, please make sure to stop by Registration soon after your arrival at the hotel to receive access to our free parking code.
Cash vs. Cashless Amenities
The hotel has moved to a (nearly) fully cashless system.
CASHLESS: If you plan to eat at the hotel bar/restaurant, you will need to either charge your meal to your room (if you are staying overnight at the hotel) or use a credit or debit card.
CASH ONLY: Please note that the cash bars in our convention space (by or in the ballroom on the second floor) on Thursday (for VIPs), Friday, and Saturday nights will only accept cash.
Our website contains all the information you need to navigate the convention this weekend, either in person or virtually. Visit our Guide to CONsole Room 2023 to find in-person room hours and gain an understanding of our hybrid layout.
Some highlights for this weekend are below, but make sure to continue to explore the pages underneath “What to Expect” in our website menu to learn more about the convention!
